Another relatively news-less day, another links party from the South Carolina Gamecocks.
What better way to start this fiesta off than with some wise, encouraging and determined words from Jadeveon Clowney?
ESPN.com says the Ted Hendricks award winner believes he can win the Heisman Trophy next year.
“That’s my next thing, New York… Next season, I am going to come out and try to work harder than I did this season and try to get there,” Clowney said.
GreenvilleOnline.com says exams were the Gamecocks first hurdle between their final regular season game and the Outback Bowl.
In another article from ESPN.com, the four-letter-network asks “why did Spurrier fail in the NFL?”
“Spurrier has since said that he “knew it was over” at the start of his second season when he wasn’t allowed to pick who was going to be his backup quarterback.”
The Times and Democrat says Dylan Thompson is led on the field by a commitment stronger than football.
Speaking of Thompson, while Connor Shaw has already been named the Gamecocks starter for the Outback Bowl, the backup will play according to Spurrier.
The biggest game of the Holiday season for South Carolina Athletics might not be that bowl game down in Tampa FL. Tomorrow, the women’s basketball team will take on No. 1 Stanford Wednesday night at home.
Stick with Garnet and Cocky for complete coverage of that game, as well as the men’s game against Appalachian State directly before the girls tip off.
